This was my very first Graydon Hall Wedding and I loved every second of it. Courtney and Craig chose to have their wedding in September because that month according to weather statistics is the less likely to rain. However, that did not prove to be the case for their wedding day. It rained and it poured all day. But you know what? It was ok. Courtney made sure to have plenty of umbrellas on hand and she and Craig were totally cool with doing their portraits outside, despite the miserable weather. I personally love doing rainy portraits because it leads to having some moody and unique photos.
Having a Graydon Hall Wedding is really terrific for a few reasons. The grounds are stunning and can be used to do all of your formal portraits without having to travel anywhere. It’s a one stop shop there! The inside and outside are architecturally stunning and create such a romantic setting for a wedding. They originally planned to have their ceremony outside but because of the rain it had to be moved inside. This wasn’t so bad though as the indoor option was beautiful and created even more so by the flower arch from Blush and Bloom.
Courtney and Craig’s Graydon Hall Wedding was a photographer’s dream not only because of the venue but because of the people. It was so wonderful to see some of my past bride’s there. Leigh who was married this past summer at Miller Lash House was a guest and so was Kathleen who had a Hart House wedding. Being surrounded by your closest friends and family is so important for your wedding and this is what Courtney and Craig made sure to happen at theirs.
